Wynn Resorts Receives Environmental Approval for Boston Harbor Project

Wynn Resorts’ legal battle to get its $2.1 billion project in Everett, near Boston, off the ground received a boost on Friday once the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) recommended the company for a waterfront development permit.

Wynn has been sued by the City of Boston, along with the City of Somerville, across the water from the former chemical plant on which project are going to be built. Meanwhile, the populous City of Revere, where a competing Mohegan Sun proposition failed to win over the video gaming payment, has sued the gaming commission for failing to be won over by its competing proposal.

While the Boston lawsuit was thrown out in December 2015 by a judge whom blasted it to be ‘spurious,’ and filled with ‘inflammatory descriptions,’ and ‘hyperbole,’ the Somerville challenge remained the impediment that is only proceeding.

Crown ended up being also awarded a gambling license that is 99-year.

Changes Ordered

The Crown Sydney will boast a hotel that is 300-room apartments, restaurants, bars, stores, conference facilities and VIP gaming Continue reading Crown Resorts $1.1 Billion Sydney Casino Project Cleared for Take-Off
